As always I am so excited when my issue of AD arrives each month. I love flipping through the pages and finding new suppliers and inspiration on every turn. This month had some really incredible spaces and ideas which I plan on sharing with all of you over the next few posts, and I thought I would start with the incredible house and studio of Spanish decorator Isabel Lopez-Quesada.
In 2000 she discovered a recently closed wax factory and saw it's potential for conversion to her home and studio. The property consists of an L-shaped building with a courtyard in the center. With large steel-framed doors that let light flood in, and a predominantly white wall palette, Lopez-Quesada has converted this old factory into a beautiful design statement. Her choice of furnishings and art is interesting with a well-executed mix of old and new with textured and smooth. There is calmness about this space that I truly admire and could picture escaping from the bustle of Madrid to the tranquility of the leafy courtyard.
